Hi everyone --

Here's the meeting details for this month's CDBUG meeting. We will be
meeting at the usual place and time: INOC, 80 State St., Albany, at 6:45 PM.

See you guys there! As always, please forward this announcement to
anyone you feel would want to attend.



One of the most important aspects of running systems is configuring and
managing disks; the FreeBSD "GEOM" system is an extraordinarily powerful
modular system for configuring and controling 'flow' of data through the
system. With this plugin system you can interface with BIOS 'softraid'
systems, partitioning, encryption, device scheduling, remotely attached
storage, multipathing, and caching to just name a few provided modules
on every FreeSBD system.

Speaker Bio:
David Cross has spent most of his professional career working with
FreeBSD; First as the Laboratory Director for the Department of Computer
Science at Rensselaer.  From there he designed and supported the
infrastructure for the website OkCupid.  Recently he's helped to develop
the website whosay.com that lets celebreties syndicate themselves to the
world of social media; and currently helps people receive their
ecommerce orders on time by working on the Platform and Pipeline teams
at CommerceHub.
